  • Coordinated Assault

    "I'm proud of him." That's what the father of Dafna Meir's murderer said when the Palestinian media asked him what he thinks of his cold-blooded son Murad Adais. On Sunday afternoon, Adais butchered Meir in her home, in front of her children. Whether Adais Sr. is really happy that his son will rot in prison is less important than the fact that he said what he said to his home crowd. He knows that his audience thinks his son is a hero. And so he played to his audience. Since last September when the Palestinians began their current terrorist onslaught,...

    Toward the end of the century, Westerners who fled their home countries to fight in Afghanistan or Bosnia shared a common characteristic: They were practically all men. Today’s militant recruits, however, represent a dramatic demographic shift. Most are just entering adulthood. They often meet terrorists online. They’ve asked in covert chats: Do you have hair dryers, or should I bring one? One in seven are women, according to a new report. An estimated 4,500 Westerners have ditched home for the Islamic State or other Sunni jihadist groups in Syria or Iraq. Researchers at New America, a nonpartisan think tank in...

    American activist Rachel Corrie was killed in Gaza ten years ago today. The International Solidarity Movement write this message in her memory. Rachel, a 23 year old woman from Olympia, Washington, was crushed to death by an Israeli army bulldozer on the 16th March 2003, whilst protesting non-violently against the demolition of a Palestinian house by Israeli forces. As an activist she spoke out about the injustices that she saw in Gaza. I feel like Im witnessing the systematic destruction of a peoples ability to survive. Its horrifying Sometimes I sit down to dinner with people and I realize there...
  • College officials cite non-discrimination law to admit biological males into women's locker rooms

    11/02/2012 10:01:43 PM PDT · by oliverdarcy · 32 replies
    Administrators at a public college are claiming that state law allows them to permit biological males who self-identify as females into womens locker rooms and restrooms on campus. Officials at Evergreen State College in Washington State stood by the claim in an interview with Campus Reform on Friday despite multiple complaints from females who apparently complained about the presence of men in womens facilities. We have to follow a non-discrimination policy with the state, college spokesperson Jason Wettstein told Campus Reform on Friday. State law doesnt allow us to ignore gender identity as one of the protected classes, he added.

By Joel Leyden Israel News AgencyJerusalem, Israel --- September 1, 2012 ... Part of the following was communicated by the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs to the Israel News Agency. Whether from Hamas, the PA or an Israeli living in Sderot, we would all agree on one thing - the death of Rachel Corrie was tragic. Where we disagree is that a free and democratic court in Haifa, Israel believes that this accident never...

    A former congressman who represented Rachel Corrie's district said on Thursday he was unsurprised by an Israeli court verdict to dismiss a civil suit filed by the family. Speaking to the Bethlehem-based Maan news agency, Democrat Brian Baird of Washington said the trial was undermined by Israel's failure to conduct a transparent investigation into Corries death in 2003. The verdict was not a great surprise because the outcome resulted from a process that seemed designed to obfuscate the facts rather than clarify, the ex-lawmaker said. Sadly, as I've come to understand, this is standard operating procedure for many complaints alleging...

    The hateful mindset of the lawyer for Rachel Corrie's family has been revealed by Palestinian Media Watch, which reports the lawyer called Israel "a giant monster" in a July rant and compared it unfavorably to Nazi Germany. After a court exonerated Israel on Tuesday from responsibility for Corrie's death, the family's Israeli Arab lawyer, Hussein Abu Hussein, said in a statement to the press: "It's a black day for activists of human rights and people who believe in values of dignity. We believe this decision is a bad decision for all of us: civilians first of all, and peace activists."...

    It should be said loudly, and clearly: Rachel Corrie broke the law, and her fate was expected and inevitable. While her parents are grieving and a parent's pain is understandable, their reaction is biased and evidence of a despicable double-standard against Israel. Its quite amazing - just as theres no peace flotilla to Syria, there are also no Rachel Corries protecting the poor tortured innocent children today in Syria. Imagine if in the midst of the war in Iraq, a foreigner entered a closed military zone and disregarded the orders of the military who was carrying out necessary maneuvers. Would...

    March 16 is the anniversary of Rachel Corries death. She is the American college student killed by an Israeli bulldozer in Gaza while attempting to block a house demolition. Israeli authorities claim that the driverwas unable to see Corrie, given the restricted vision from his perch, and that she acted recklessly by inserting herself into the path of the bulldozer. But as always happens in the Middle East, lies trumped truth. The Corrie myth has been one of the most powerful tools in the anti-Israel propaganda campaign. She inspired literary works, boycotts and political memorials all around the world. Her...

The co-op is a member-based, not-for-profit, natural food grocery...

    The Tehran City Council on Tuesday ratified a proposal calling for one of the streets in Tehran to be named after the American peace activist, Rachel Corrie, who is viewed as an icon by many for her resistance against the Zionist regime. Rachel Aliene Corrie was an American member of the International Solidarity Movement (ISM) and a peace activist who was brutally crushed to death in 2003 when run over by a U.S.-supplied Israeli army bulldozer while attempting to prevent the demolition of a Palestinian home in Gaza.

    A group of self-proclaimed peace activists bringing dual-purpose materials to Gaza have refused to deliver the goods preferring that they remain at sea rather than be transported through Israel. The activists are aboard a ship carrying 4.6 miles of sewage pipes. Materials such as pipes have been allowed into Gaza only under international supervision in recent years, as Hamas and other terrorist groups often use the pipes in manufacturing short-range rockets to fire on Israeli civilians (pictured right). However, under an agreement reached with the help of the Egyptian and Malaysian governments, the goods could be delivered to Gaza...

    Is it really still a mystery why political pilgrims are exterminated by the totalitarian entities they worship? The Italian cheerleader for Hamas, Vittorio Arrigoni, has died at the hands of the Islamic terrorism that he venerated throughout his life. The fellow traveler journeyed to the Gaza Strip to prostrate himself before his secular deity, Hamas, and to assist its venture of perpetrating genocide against Israelis. Islamic terrorists, who call themselves Salafists, showed their gratitude to Arrigoni by kidnapping, mercilessly beating, and executing him. This episode was, of course, all part of an expected script: even though the media and our...

    IPT News June 9, 2010 SNIPPET: "The Turkish-based charity that helped drive last week's deadly confrontation with Israeli commandos has deep ties to Hamas and other terrorist groups. The Hamas ties are not in question. Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and IHH officials simply do not acknowledge that Hamas is a terrorist group." SNIPPET: "U.S. officials have expressed concern over the fact that "IHH representatives have met with senior Hamas officials in Turkey, Syria, and Gaza over the past three years," but IHH is not a designated terrorist organization in the United States. It's fair to ask, why not?"...
